NEW YORK — Cornell made the most of a second chance and earned its first berth to the NCAA Tournament.

Moina Snyder and Jeomi Maduka each scored 14 Sunday to help Cornell beat Dartmouth 64-47 and win the Ivy League playoff.

"It was a dream come true," Cornell coach Dayna Smith said.

The Big Red fell a game behind in the Ivy race two weeks ago, but swept Princeton and Penn and got some help to force a three-way tie. Since the league has no conference tournament, a playoff was set up, in which Dartmouth beat Harvard for the right to face Cornell.

No.  14 Old Dominion 71, VCU 64: T.J. Jordan and Tiffany Green scored 15 each in Newark, Del., as the Monarchs rallied from an 18-point deficit to win its 17th consecutive Colonial title.

AMERICA EAST: Lisa Etienne scored 19 to help Hartford win its fourth championship, 61-45 victory over Boston University in West Hartford, Conn.

BIG SOUTH: Courtney Watkins scored all 16 of her points in the second half and Megan Frazee hit the winning basket with 0.3 seconds left in Asheville, N.C., to help Liberty beat Radford 66-65.

HORIZON: Kailey Klein had 29 points and 13 rebounds to lead Cleveland State to its their first NCAA Tournament berth with a 70-56 win over Wright State in Green Bay, Wis.

MISSOURI VALLEY: Kristi Cirone scored 20 to lead Illinois State to a 70-62 victory over Drake in the final in St. Charles, Mo.

NORTHEAST: Sade Logan and Chinata Nesbit combined for 33 points as Robert Morris defeated Long Island 86-75 in Moon Township, Pa.
